2022FOM-August- Danny B.-2

Danny B.-Just an update as to my coin finds so far. Nothing old, but allot of clad from 3 parks (150+). There are numerous targets, so I set my disc high and notch out most of the mid tones in order to hear the coins. It appears to be working!!  I’m going to “coin shoot” the parks until cooler weather, then start digging all mid tones. Two parks have swimming beaches, I haven’t even entered the water yet, but I will at some point.
